Terrorists kill village head in late Gov Yakowa’s home town

By Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna


Terrorists suspected to be Fulani militias have reportedly killed Mai-ungwa of Ungwanpa in Fadan Ikulu in Ikulu chiefdom, the home town of former Governor of Kaduna state late Ibrahim Yakowa.

Information from the family of the decease through a cousin averred that the victim, Nebu Bauna, was shot dead while he was sleeping by suspected Fulani killer.

It was however alleged that the community has never had any known records of disagreement with the Fulanis previously.

The statement read in parts: “Killer Fulani Killed my Cousin Last Night 23 April 2022. Nebu Bauna the maiungwa of Ungwanpa, Fadan Ikulu, in Ikulu Chiefdom in Kaduna State was killed in his sleep by gunshot.

“The area is tensed. The people have no history of disagreement with Fulani but Fulani killed him all the same”, the statement added.

A local source confirmed that, “Like in most other areas suffering attacks, there was never any disagreement with the Fulani. This is why I laugh when I here people say farmers/ herders clashes.

All efforts to clarify details of the killing by the alleged terrorists Fulani militias failed, as the Police Command spokesman Asp Mohammed Jalige could not respond when contacted.
